Healthy Meetings
Add healthy food and physical activity to your meetings


Employers, community groups and faith communities can make it easier for people to make healthy food choices by providing healthy food at meetings and other events they sponsor.

These suggestions can be used for selecting foods, beverages, and snacks for meetings and other events. Providing options helps everyone to improve their overall health. Mississippi is fighting obesity, and the role of food choices and physical activity in the prevention of many diseases is becoming more apparent.
